Trampolines are becoming THE items for health and fun activity for families but many potential trampoline owners don’t want to lose the beauty and aesthetic appeal they have worked so hard for in their beautiful backyard. What is a potential trampoline owner to do? Consider the aesthetic benefits for inground trampolines and how they blend seamlessly into a yard, no matter how beautifully landscaped.
An inground trampoline is virtually unable to be distinguished in your landscaping (unless you have a safety enclosure and some families opt for one). An inground trampoline is buried into the yard and when you use it you’re bouncing at ground level.
Aesthetic benefits for inground trampolines
Here are some items to consider when getting an inground trampoline and why they are so popular for those who want to keep their beautifully landscaped yard space.
- Choose your site carefully. You will want a site for the inground trampoline that is level and has good drainage — you don’t want your inground trampoline above a pit filled with water. Choose a site that has no overhead obstructions or hazards — tree branches, the overhang on the house, etc.
- Can you dig the hole by hand or will you need to bring in heavy equipment? If you need to have equipment brought in, is your yard large enough for it to maneuver through?
- Air movement is crucial beneath the trampoline as a large volume of air is displaced when you’re jumping on the trampoline. It may be necessary to leave a small gap — two inches — to allow air to escape. Insufficient air flow will impede rebounding ability.
These are three of the items you will want to think about when considering an inground trampoline. You already know you want one, you just need to know where it will fit into your landscaping.
